BJP loses southern citadel: Exit polls

BJP loses southern citadel: Exit polls
Charges of corruption against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seems to have outweighed similar charges against the Congress party. The forecasts made by different survey agencies indicate that Congress could return to power in Karnataka after seven years. While the predictions of the three leading survey agencies vary from 100 to 132 seats in the 224 member house (polls were held for 223), they are unanimous that the Congress would emerge as the single largest party with a huge margin.

According to the forecasts, the BJP has emerged as the biggest loser as its tally is likely to be reduced by more than half from 110 seats that it had won in 2008. The worst case scenario for the BJP is 31 seats. This could be very embarrassing for the saffron party if the BJP rebel BS Yeddyurappa’s Karanataka Janata Party (KJP) manages to get the best case scenario of 24 seats. The much hyped party of former chief minister does not seem to have much impact in the state as his KJP has been relegated to the fourth position. The polls incidentally predict improved performance by former prime minister HD Deve Gowda’s Janata Dal (S). All the agencies suggest that his party would improve tally from 28 seats it had won in 2008 polls.
